Wasp and Hornet Control Best Practice

The safest and most reliable way to eliminate wasps is to directly treat the nest.  If the nest is not visible (i.e. it is in a wall void or another inaccessible area) then treatment should be applied to the wasp’s entry / exit point into the structure.

Most Bald-Faced Hornets’ nests and Umbrella Wasps’, aka Paper Wasps’, nests will be visible.  Treatment should be in the form of an aerosol or liquid insecticide.  Most Carpenter Bees’ nests and Yellow Jackets’ nests will not be visible; therefore, a dust treatment should be applied to the entry / exit point.

Never seal wasps in a structure. Eliminating the wasp’s entry / exit point will not kill the colony, they will be forced to find another way out which is often through your home.

Our professional team has the experience, training, and ability to eliminate all types of wasps, including: Bald-Faced Hornets, Carpenter Bees, Umbrella Wasps, aka Paper Wasps, Yellow Jackets, and more.
